The Global Energetics and Environmental Simulation Suite (GENESIS) is New Zealand's first whole room calorimeter and environmental simulation suite. This powerful research tool allows researchers to conduct gold standard assessments of energy expenditure, particularly useful in obesity and diabetes research fields.

Measuring 4 m × 5 m, the suite is also able to simulate a variety of environmental conditions making it perfect for research into the physiological effects of extreme conditions.

GENESIS capabilities

Temperature -10 to +50 ºC
Humidity 5% to 95% RH
Simulated altitude Up to 5,400 m

The suite is used for both research and athletic training.
